electric start prob. jeep wont start

so the previous owner of my Jeep Cheroke sport (2001) put in an electric starT, over time *not even a month* the electric lock horn started giving out, and now the Jeep wont even start. we thing in the prosses of putting in this new electric start, the wiring got mixed up and now its not making the connection and we may need a new starter

any input? :S

not sure whats exactly happening but its pretty hard to mess up wiring when replacing a starter. maybe a bad or loose connection so the starter won't engage, but can't see this messing up other electrical stuff. maybe just a coincidence and the battery and/or charging system is going out?
